Do you remember BSCs AyAy Kaeppttn SID player for the CPC? He started to work on it again and improved it even more so that it supports three SID channels on the CPC now. When running his new SID engine, the CPC uses about 100% of the CPU, so there is nothing left for anything else. Well, since this is currently work in progress there is no official release, but you can listen to a conversion of the song “The Last Hero” by Future Freak of Dexion. You can join the technical discussion about the player in the CPC Wiki forums.
BSC, probably best known for his Soundtrakker, just released the source code of a new music tracker, which is also capable to play SID voices on the Amstrad CPC. Currently the graphical user interface is quite rudimentary, but the tracker is useable, produces an awesome sound and hey… after the source code release, you can write a GUI by yourself :-).
Well, the following audio examples stand for themselves:
You can get the source code and a snapshot for an emulator from GitHub. The technical discussion is available in the CPC Wiki forums including a description of the keyboard shortcuts.
